Full description
Zakopane is the most popular winter resort in Poland. Zakopane is visited by over 2.5 million tourists a year. Many tourists come to Zakopane to experience the heritage of highlander culture, which is rich in a unique style of food, speech, architecture, and music.
In Zakopane, the most popular street is Krupówki Street, which is a peculiar market of the city and its central point. Krupówki street is crowded with tourists who visit shops and go to restaurants located along the street. On this street you can find many traditional highlander items to buy, such as clothes and souvenirs, but also to eat, such as the famous smoked sheep cheese called "Oscypek".

In winter, Zakopane is visited by tourists who practice winter sports, such as skiing or snowmobiling. In the summer, tourists come here to walk in the mountains. Zakopane is also the place where the Winter Ski Jumping World Championships take place. The best ski jumpers in the world, including the Polish team consisting of outstanding ski jumpers, celebrate their successes here.

The most important places in Zakopane are mountain peaks. Giewont is a mountain peak at the foot of Zakopane. On Giewont is placed a huge cross - a symbol of Catholicism in Poland. The second equally important mountain peak near Zakopane is Rysy - the highest point located within the country.
